Jury decides on $234M penalty for Apple in WARF infringement case

10/19, 11:59am

Apple to appeal decision, maintains patent is over-broad and invalid

Following a guilty verdict against Apple in a case that claimed the iPhone maker incorporated technology in its A7, A8, and A8X chips covered by a patent held by the University of Wisconsin's Alumni Research Foundation (WARF), a Wisconsin jury has decided that Apple owes the foundation $234 million in damages for its infringement. The award is just over half the among sought by WARF, and considerably less than the $862.4 million it could have faced, but the jury disagreed with a finding of willful infringement.

Should the ruling not be overturned or modified on appeal, Apple could be facing damages of up to $862.4 million. The university also successfully sued Intel over the same patent, receiving an undisclosed sum in 2008.
